The Instructors

Timothy Skaggs

Timothy is profoundly Deaf and was mainstreamed throughout school with limited access to language. He attended Gallaudet University where he majored in Psychology and discovered the richness and culture of ASL and the Deaf community.

He has taught American Sign Language at a number of universities as well as community classes. His hobbies include photography, hiking, watching stand-up comedy, and creating art.


Timothy teaches our general ASL classes.

Britny is one of only a handful of Deaf LPNs in the country and has been working in the medical field since 2014.
